privilege as far as being a citizen of the united states to vote and be part of the process. that is all i have to say. host: frank newport, it sounded like from the comments last night by mitt romney that they were really focusing on from here on out approaching voters who had voted for obama in 2008 and looking to lure them to the romney campaign. is there any way that gallup will be checking that attempt? guest: absolutely straight -- absolutely. we track daily. for a republican to win, they have to pull back in some of those voters. if the same scenario happens this year that unfolded in 2008, obama is going to win again. republicans have two goals -- one is to activate the core republican voters and get them to turn out, which is easier for republicans and democrats, because republicans are more likely to vote. they have characteristics like age and education that make them more likely to vote. the second task is to pull down at 7% margin that obama had over mccain, so they have to come in to become a convert some of those people who went for obama to go to romney, or they were going

not be president of the united states without the new leviathan behind him. barack obama came out of columbia, and the first job he had, his first community organizing job which is just another name for being a radical, um, was with the gamaleal foundation. sounds religious, actually. it's religious in the way that jim wallace is religious or jesse jackson or jeremiah wright. it's a radical organization whose goal was to get lots of government money into, into poverty areas. i'm going to come back to getting money into poverty areas, if i remember, in a bit. but that's where he started. and he was picked up, well, because he already as in college, already in high school he was a radical. so he was also picked up by the midwest academy. and these are funded by macarthur and ford and rockefeller and joyce and so forth. the midwest academy is run by two '60s radicals or by heather booth in particular. her husband, paul booth, is an executive with the municipal employees' union, so you have -- this is where the alliance between the government unions, government union thugs and they're very radica
